It has been confirmed that the supernatural anime by the manga author ONE, 'Mob psycho 100', is coming back for a season 2. The news was announced at the special event Mob Psycho 100 Reigen ~Shirazaru Kiseki no Reinouryokusha~, which took place at the Maihama Amphitheater on 18 March 2018. ONE is also the man behind the story of the one-hit wonder, One Punch Man, that took the anime community by storm in 2015, and is also getting a season 2 in 2018.

Here's the synopsis of the series from MAL:

Eighth-grader Shigeo "Mob" Kageyama has tapped into his inner wellspring of psychic prowess at a young age. But the power quickly proves to be a liability when he realizes the potential danger in his skills. Choosing to suppress his power, Mob's only present use for his ability is to impress his longtime crush, Tsubomi, who soon grows bored of the same tricks.

In order to effectuate control on his skills, Mob enlists himself under the wing of Arataka Reigen, a con artist claiming to be a psychic, who exploits Mob's powers for pocket change. Now, exorcising evil spirits on command has become a part of Mob's daily, monotonous life. However, the psychic energy he exerts is barely the tip of the iceberg; if his vast potential and unrestrained emotions run berserk, a cataclysmic event that would render him completely unrecognizable will be triggered. The progression toward Mob's explosion is rising and attempting to stop it is futile.

Twitter handle liborek3 also tweeted about the news, stating that director Yuzuru Tachikawa will return for the second season as well.

The first season aired for 12 episodes from July 11, 2016 to September 27, 2016 and received critical acclaim from the community. It has also been reported that the staff and the cast will return to their respective roles. Here is the complete staff of the show:
